The Karawara Public Open Space Master Plan and Collaborative Action Plan contains 14 projects that aim to strengthen Karawara’s public open space and community character.
Since the implementation of the Masterplan commenced in 2013, the majority of project actions have been addressed. The only remaining actions are for a wayfinding strategy to be designed and implemented through the Pedestrian Access Ways (PAWs) and to investigate and trial the installation of permeable fencing along rear property boundaries.
At its 15 December 2020 meeting, Council considered a petition with 11 signatures, requesting the closure of a PAW located between Yallambee Place and Koolunda Court, Karawara. Council resolved to progress the closure of this PAW in 2021.
The City will follow Department of Planning, Lands and Heritage guidelines to implement the closure and affected land owners will be contacted in due course.
The Council report and resolution can is available here.
The Karawara Public Open Space Master Plan and Collaborative Action Plan was developed through significant community engagement, including informal workshops, Aboriginal community focus sessions, a pop-up discussion trail and drop-in events.
The vision for the project is ‘working together to strengthen Karawara’s public open space and community character.’
- Building on Karawara character: Retain, enhance and actively build upon local spatial character attributes and seek to build upon the growing community capacity (pride)
- Connectivity: Seek to retain and enhance existing important linkages throughout Karawara and to adjoining suburbs
- Amenity: To incorporate amenity that reflects the landscape character and offers diversity of multiuse areas to foster community interaction
- Safety and security: Continue to build upon developing a safe and welcoming environment.
The purpose of the Collaborative Action Plan is to provide the community and stakeholders, in conjunction with the City of South Perth, an agreed project list that can be collectively implemented. The implementation of each project is based on timing and priorities that may also require specialists, either from the City or external consultants, to aid in the design and implementation of each project.
